Thank you for the link. I will spend a little time trying to get antiquated with QEMU and see if that helps me figure out where I am having difficulties.
I have been able to install virt-manager and QEMU and I can successfully create a new virtual machine and install a flavor of Linux.
But when I try to install Windows 10 it appears that the install disk (the CDROM) loses connection to the windows 10 iso. I am following these instructions:
as well as:
But in neither case does the installation stop like mine does (I get an error similar to this document: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/a-media-driver-your-computer-needs-is-missing/) right after I click the install button. When I look at the virtual CDROM drives they appear to no longer have the windows 10 iso loaded.
The reason I didn't ask the question here directly is mostly because it seems like an intersection between QEMU and Windows 10, but I am lost as to where I would actually ask the question. I appreciate the response. Thanks.
